Nokia 8 was unveiled on 16 August 2017. The company is hoping to cash in on the consumers’ growing demand for high-quality audio and video recording features.
Though Nokia 8 can beat the competitors in terms of pricing, it faces tough competition from its rivals like Apple (for its 10th iPhone anniversary). Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to be launched in the last week of August 2017.
Nokia is expected to price its new Nokia 8 at $703. At this price, it gives a tough competition to Apple by providing all the key features of the latest smartphone without compromising on its build quality
One of the key features of the new Nokia 8 is that it provides live video streaming on social media from both front and back cameras on a split screen. It has its own camera maker, Zeiss from where it has got licensed lens technology.
When it comes to audio, this phone gives a tough competition to Huawei’s latest launch P10. It has its own audio technology made for its virtual reality camera OZO.
For using the brand and its patents for Nokia 8, HMD is expected to pay royalties to Nokia. Last month, Nokia’s former executive, Arto Nummela left the company for some personal reasons, said HMD.
